He also did a hilarious take on KentBrockmanNews as Richard Burns on ''Radio/GTARadio'', plays [[StrawNihilist Fawkes]] on ''WebVideo/TheGuild'' and was a frequent guest on the [[WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated Dungeons & Dragons podcast]] alongside his fellow geek luminaries from ''WebComic/PennyArcade'' and ''Webcomic/PvP''. He also plays Darkstar (imagine if Wesley was more obnoxious and villainous) in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'', and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]''. He also had a recurring role as Dr. Isaac Parrish, a {{Jerkass}} [[TheAce Ace]], [[spoiler:unsuccessful]] astronaut candidate, and Fargo's [[TheRival long time rival]], on ''Series/{{Eureka}}.'' He is also the host of ''WebVideo/{{Tabletop}}'' and its RPG spin-off ''WebVideo/TitansgraveTheAshesOfValkana'', and plays himself as a recurring character in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''. In addition, Wil, like his ''The Guild'' co-star Creator/FeliciaDay, has a voice role in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', as the voice of the Robobrain enemy. In ''VideoGame/CodeNameSteam'', he voice-acts UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln. He now hosts ''TheWilWheatonProject'', a show which is pretty much ''TheSoup'' for sci-fi/fantasy and geek culture in general. In 2014, he was cast as recurring character Earl Harlan in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale''.

Since embracing his inner geek, he's written four compilations of memoirs, has a world-famous blog, and is embraced by geekdom as their avatar. It doesn't hurt that many of the mostly guest acting gigs he's scored these days are as geeks or voices of comic book heroes such as [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Aqualad]] and [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold the second Blue Beetle]]. He was a caustic comic book collector on an episode of ''Series/{{Numb3rs}}'' that took place at a comic convention(!), a supremely creepy unsub (as if there's any other kind) on ''Series/CriminalMinds'' and a {{Jerkass}} computer hacker on ''Series/{{Leverage}}'', a role which he has reprised several times.

* RunningGag: Wil has ''horrible'' luck with dice, to the point where thanks to ''Tabletop'' and ''Critical Role'', he is said to be haunted by "The Wheaton Dice Curse."

Believe it or not, ''he'' hates [[CreatorBacklash Wesley]], or rather what the writers had him do as Wesley. [[http://www.tvsquad.com/bloggers/wil-wheaton His reviews]] of the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episodes are sure to mention exactly how annoying Wesley is each time he appeared in the show. Unfortunately his review column was discontinued in early 2008 when TV Squad was bought by AOL, but he has collected his reviews of the first 13 episodes, expanded them and put them in a book called ''Memories of the Future: Volume 1'' released in late 2009. ''Memories of the Future Volume 2'', due to be released whenever, will cover the rest of the first season, most of which he didn't get the chance to review before the aforementioned discontinuing.
